Topic: PERM application for CTS (Cognizant) employees

I have heard that those whose PERM was not filed in this cycle will have to wait all the way till dec or jan of next year for their PERM to be filed. CTS will have their next PERM cycle in dec or jan next year, and nothing before that. I am also in same boat with 6 yrs expiring in 2014

I was checking on myvisajobs website for the latest numbers on PERM for CTS for 2012 and noticed a very disturbing fact.
All the filed cases for this year are either denied/withdrawn or Certified-Expired..

When will CTS start next cycle to apply PERM? all those who are in the queue and will not be covered in this cycle need to wait how much longer?

Does that mean that your H1 is not maxing out in 2013, still they filed your PERM? When did you submit your case to GIT?

I got following update from GIT... not able to understand that are they going to file all pending cases till Dec-2013 in next 30 days or are they lying??
******************************
We have resumed PERM filings for only those Associates who are in Urgent Max Out Situations. For those in Urgent Max Out Situations ( those that we have their max out date by 12/31/2013), we are hoping to have filed in next 30 days.Your's should be filed based on your MAXOUT date, you will be notified once the PERM is filed.

Can anyone suggest me... i had submitted my docs in may. and my dates on myvisa site said that educational evaluation to be started/completed by jun/21.
That date has passed and I see no action. When I write mail to GTI, they say raise a ticket in GSD..
I have 11 months left before last 365 days. Will they have me wait till the last month before they submit my application? My perm filing date is put as september 2012..

CTS does not give you I-140, so practically you cannot leave CTS till you get your GC :(
I-140 is employment based immigrant petition for the green card applicant filed by the green card sponsor company and it need not be shared with employee...

good congrats.. that clarifies a lot.. can i ask one more question.. When did you start the process.. i.e. on myvisa site, when did you upload all docs and submit? this will give insight to how much time GIT might take for my case.. i submitted all the docs in May..

are you sure about this end-of-month timeline? because on this very thread, every month someone posts that GIT is expecting to start processing by end of month and then the story continues to the next month...

i had heard 1 month back from somebody that probably CTS perms are under Supervised Recruitment Process.. and DOL will be dictating the process for perm recruitment in CTS's case.. what i fear is that if this is SR, then expect to add at least six months to one year of delay to the overall processing time. And probably till that time there will be no more PERM filing...

got this response from GIT on friday... and one of my friend actually talked to one of the paralegal and she told that couple of week does not week 2 week in this context .. and at their level they do not know when it will start. But not any time soon....like 1-2 weeks.

I got following reply from GIT.... i know atleast couple of fellows who joined CTS late last year and are leaving for small vendors because of this delay. Seems there is no quick closure to this.
-----------------------
Cognizant is not able to file any PERM applications until further notice. We are currently assessing the DOL PERM requirements and policies, a definitive timeframe to resume Cognizant’s PERM program cannot be confirmed. Cognizant’s PERM program is on hold. We will not be able to provide a filing date or EB filing category.

Thanks that was helpful.
No one has contacted me since I submitted the docs. Should I send the assigned GIT person a mail etc asking where the process stands? do they respond to mails?

Topic: PERM application for CTS (Cognizant) employees

First of all, thanks for this informative thread. It seems many ppl have been kept waiting by CTS.

I have a question for MountainSeal and others on this forum.

1. I see that for few months now, GIT is saying that they will start the process in couple of weeks. Is there any end to this or does anyone have some better insight to the wait?
2. Has GIT stopped all the processes before PERM. Like PWD, recruitment process, validating documents, telling eb2/eb3 category etc.. Have all these steps/processes also stopped or are they still working on these and only the PERM process is put on hold.
3. I submitted all the docs on the myvisa site in may end. Will they start processing the doc, reviewing etc now or no action will be taken till PERM starts and all backlog is cleared...

Your valuable response is much appreciated..
